The world needs a healthy geophysical industry. Connecting applied geophysics to the business is more important than ever as operators look to lower costs and identify economically viable exploration and production opportunities.
That was the message during the opening plenary session for this year’s Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) International Exposition and 87th annual meeting.
The quality of seismic data and the analysis provided by geophysics professionals enables companies to make the best choices and be successful. The next generation of geophysics will call for even more computational power with exascale computing — computing capable of a billion billion calculations per second — to process the data from complex geological structures.
